Some Pretty Amazing Quilts!

The AQS quilt show in Paducah was just phenomenal. I’ve been to lots of wonderful quilt shows, but this one really did impress me. The quality of the quilts and the caliber of the competition – wow! Here’s a sampling of some quilts that caught my eye. It’s hard to choose – there were so many!

The quilts in the Machine Quilting Mastery Exhibit truly were masterful.

This one is called Beauty From Within” by Renae Haddadin.

Graffiti, Sunflowers and Bricks by Judy Woodworth, also in the Machine Quilting Mastery Exhibit.

Cockatoos by Sue Patten, also from that exhibit. This was simply gorgeous.

This beauty won Best of Show for Wall Quilts: Imagining India, by Pat Holly

Also from the Wall Quilt category: B.S. I Love You, by Janet Stone. Definitely a prize winner.

This gorgeous quilt, Coral Sea, by Betty Busby, of Albuquerque New Mexico, won a third place ribbon in the show. Congratulations Betty!
